Police identify man fatally shot on Saturday

July 24, 2013

A man shot and killed early Saturday in Northwest Washington’s Sursum Corda neighborhood has been identified as 52-year-old Walter Goode Jr., according to D.C. police.

Goode, of Southeast Washington, was found about 4:20 a.m. in the back of a building in the 1100 block of First Place NW. Police said he had suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The shooting occurred behind Tyler House, where 13 people were shot in a drive-by shooting in March; police have not said if there is any connection. Arrests have been made in the Tyler House shootings. The area is just off New York Avenue and a few blocks from the rapidly gentrifying neighborhood called NoMa, which is transforming with new offices, restaurants and condominiums.

Police released few other details of Goode’s shooting. He was one of three people killed in the District on Saturday, a violent weekend in which six others were shot. The victims included a brother and sister, 21 and 28 years old, killed on East Capitol Street.

No arrests have been made in the three Saturday killings.
